Windows 7: OpenVPN Connect hangs when connecting to private OVPN Server

OpenVPN Connect hangs when connecting to private OVPN Server

I run an OVPN server on a raspberrypi. Connectingt to it is done with the official client OpenVPN Connect. This setup works flawlessly with my mobile, my tablet, my Win10 laptop. Only with my Samsung Netbook NC-210 and win7 Ultimate 32bit I cannot establish a VPN tunnel. Whenever I try to connect to my OVPN Server the client hangs after some seconds.


I googled around without success. The OVPN Website seems pretty much orientated towards paying costumers for their service and their forum offered no clue either.


Can it be that my other VPN client (Proton VPN) for a paid service interferes? I also have installed FRITZ!Fernzugang to access my home-network from the outside world. It is to be said that exactly the same config works well with my win10 laptop.


Does it make sense to post the log of the OVPN Connect? I will attch it.


Thanks for reading and your kind assistance,
Peter

It's possible and to rule it out try uninstalling Protonvpn and see what happens.

I'm not exactly sure what FRITZ!Fernzugang is, but that might be an issue as well. You should be able to just use the OpenVPN client to make a connection.

BTW, your log shows your IP address. I don't see any errors in there so you might want to delete it.


Are all the connections successful locally and externally?

Thanks F22 Simpilot for your kind interest. Now to what I did so far:


Uninstall of ProtonVPN client
Uninstall of FRITZ!Fernzugang (that is a VPN Client setting up a tunnel to my FRITZ!Box ADSL router)
Uninstall of OpenVPN client
The "nuclear option" as per that instruction (Thanks to Simpilot)
Reinstall OpenVPN Client (performs ok)
Reinstall ProtonVPN client (performs ok, no interference with OpneVPN)


So far everything is ok, next I will reinstall the Fernzugang and report back here.
